Cold WeatherClarksville, TN – With the temperatures dropping this week, pet owners should take extra care making sure their pets are protected from the elements.

At night  make sure that your pet sleeps away from drafts, preferably in a pet bed.

It is also important to make sure that your cat  or dog always wears an appropriately fitting collar and an ID tag with your current address and phone number on it (even if your pet never goes outdoors because you never know what might happen). «Read the rest of this article»

Thumbs Up for a Special Feline Family!

 

Humane Society of Clarksville – Montgomery County (HSCMC)Clarksville, TN – Will extra toes guarantee forever homes for members of this rescued kitty family? We hope so! The extra toe is a spontaneous genetic mutation called polydactylism. Ernest Hemingway, renowned American novelist, was known for keeping polydactyl cats at his home in Key West, Florida. Even today, ancestors of his pets stroll through the grounds of his home, now a tourist attraction. There is a foundation that cares for the cats and manages their numbers through selective spaying and neutering to ensure the continuity of this colony.

Animal rescue: New pure bred pinscher now part of the family

 

My family adopted a rescued puppy and named her Sophie. I found her on petfinder.com, which has pets from local humane societies and shelters. My dog came from Jack’s Place which is about 50 miles North of Clarksville in White Plains, KY.

I haven’t had a dog in a long time. She is already part of the family. It only took two minutes for her to know she is lower in the pecking order than our 10-year-old cat Rose, but they’re starting to get along.

Someone abandoned or ‘dropped’ Sophie out in the country, despite her being a pure bred miniature pinscher. Most dogs left this way die from starvation. Bob and Christine operate Jack’s Place and are at their maximum capacity with adoptable dogs and cats. If you have room in your home and heart and would like a dog or cat, try petfinder.com before you purchase a pet. Ninety percent of pets taken to animal shelters are euthanized; there are just too many of them.

The kindest thing you can do for all dogs and cats is to have yours spayed or neutered. According to the Clarksville Humane Society, Clarksville kills over 90 animals a week because of over-population.
